The Kadima 6th, 7th & 8th graders of Congregation Or Shalom will be spending the night outdoors in cardboard boxes outside the Synagogue from 6:30 p.m. till midnight for their annual “Freeze Out”
A Freeze Out is an effort to become aware of the plight of the homeless in America.
Rabbi Alvin Wainhaus said, “It’s all too easy for our suburban children to be oblivious to the problem of homelessness, that is so obvious just a few miles away in our inner cities. More and more youth groups across the United States have therefore begun to try to understand the problem of homelessness.”
Everyone in the Orange community should consider stopping by sometime tonight to drop off items that might be of help to the homeless (e.g., toiletries, coats, hats, gloves, etc.) We’ll see that they get to local shelters immediately. They’ll also be accepting monetary donations for Orange Operation Fuel.
“Consider coming out to help the homeless, and supporting our brave Kadima kids,” Wainhaus said.
The Rabbi will be speaking to the kids in the parking lot at 6:45 p.m. to kick off the event.
